Open Screen Night @ Heritage House Saturday
Chattanooga, TN … ChattaMovies, a local independent moviemaker group, the City of Chattanooga's Department of Education Arts & Culture, and the Chattanooga Southeast Tennessee Film Commission will co-host an open screen night at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 7, 2012 at the Heritage House in East Brainerd.
About 2 hours of independently-produced short works submitted by movie makers from Chattanooga and the surrounding region will be screened at the event. Admission for the event is FREE. Three Open Screen Nights will be held throughout the year at Heritage House. Many genres will be represented in the mix of entries--from music videos and comedies, to documentaries and dramas. The works voted as Audience Favorites at the three Open Screen Nights in Chattanooga and Atlanta will be screened at year's end at the "Best of Open Screen Night 2012" event to be held at a major theatre in Chattanooga. The "Best of Open Screen Night 2011" was held at the Rave Theatre.
Jim Smith, EarLuminator producer and one of the event's organizers, says he thinks of Open Screen Night as an "open mic night" for indie movie makers. "We don't even jury the submissions. Everyone's film has a chance to be seen. There is no better way to support the
local indie artist than to watch their works being screened - We just screened the current submissions of excellent works in Atlanta, and now it's Chattanooga's turn to vote for their favorites."

Despite apologizing and meeting with gay-rights groups, he was cut loose from the show.
ARIEL WINTER - "MR. PEABODY AND SHERMAN"
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Ariel Winter had heard of "Mr. Peabody and Sherman" before she was cast as Penny in the movie version of it, but she had never seen it. Winter says she looked up the cartoons and thought they were "hilarious and brilliant," but then she made a realization: Penny wasn't in the cartoons. Winter saw that as an opportunity, because she could create the character. She says it was like being given a blank book and she got to write the pages. "Mr. Peabody and Sherman" opens in theaters today.
Ariel Winter says she doesn't limit herself to just live acting or just voiceovers for animation because she wants to do everything.
